Joanne Adams attends grandson’s performance at Lexington venue


Since I skipped a column last week, some of this is carried over from the week before last.

Bob and I attended the Little Ruby Church on its regular Sunday meeting. It was good to see Grace Caudill able to be out to church. I hadn’t seen her in quite awhile and it was nice to talk with her.

We were sorry to learn that Johnny Sexton’s father-in-law, Willard Logan, is not doing well at this time.

Recently, Bob and I took Don and Coreen Pridemore to Cumberland Falls. We stopped by London on the way to pick up our daughter, Jessie. We enjoyed walking around the falls and having dinner at the lodge. We had a nice evening being together.

Joanne Adams and her daughter, Michelle, recently attended a performance at the Opera House in Lexington, where Joanne’s grandson, Kody, was performing. Kody is 15 years old and his mother is Joanne’s daughter, Marsha. They had a very nice evening.

I hope Clayton Shepherd had a happy 90th birthday and received many nice cards.

Our Homemakers Club had our Thanksgiving dinner last week. We all enjoyed being together and the wonderful food everyone brought in.

My aunt, Juanita McCrarey, fell while up here visiting from Somerset. She broke her shoulder in four places and it wasn’t repairable by surgery. She will just have to do physical therapy to try to keep the bones from fusing together and becoming stiff. Her daughter was with her and Vince drove them back to Somerset. Juanita had come up to visit her sister, Mamie Engle, who isn’t doing too well lately.

Connie Blair fixed Mamie a couple plates of dinner recently, and Mamie really appreciated the good deed and the good food.

We’re glad James Collie is back home and hopefully feeling better after recently having to have a stent put in to help his heart.

It was sad to learn that Knott County resident Oakley Combs died. He was faithful to attend Blair Branch Church as long as he was able. He was Junior Slone’s uncle and had many nieces and nephews in Letcher County.

The family of Verlin Breeding and the late Betty Breeding recently got together for their annual trip to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Many family members and friends spent the weekend together enjoying the Smoky Mountains.

I hope everyone remembered to support the many veterans on Veterans Day. They gave and give their best to keep our nation free and make our country a better place to live.

Can you believe this week will be Thanksgiving? It doesn’t seem possible. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.

On Dec. 1 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Mount Olivet Church at Blackey will have its annual Christmas bazaar and soup bean dinner. There will be homemade goodies, cakes, pies, candy and cookies along with arts and crafts. The soup bean dinner will be served with kraut and wieners, Polish sausage, cornbread and dessert with a cost of $5. You may eat at the church or have dinner fixed to go.

Our sympathy goes out to “Doolittle” Seals and his family who lost another brother last week. They have lost two brothers and a sister within a year’s time.

Opal Banks went to Ohio over the weekend to see her newest great-granddaughter, Lillian Mae. She went with Ed and Cheryl Banks and their family and they stayed with Ed’s daughter, Beth, and her husband. Ed’s son, Joshua, is the new dad and he and his wife also have a son, George.

Recently, Bonita Adams, Coreen, Lana and Amber Pridemore, Arnetta Mae Slone and I all loaded up and went to Corbin to eat and shop at the Cracker Barrel Restaurant. Jessie had 45 percent off and we took advantage of her employee discount. We all enjoyed being together and had a real nice time.

Mary Helen Blair and her sister, Nancy Carol Craft, went with Adrian Blair to Indiana to visit Enos Blair and his family. They are back and had a good visit.
